The ProvideX Non-procedural Object Module Application Development System (NOMADS) is an integrated programming environment for the development of complex GUI-based applications. NOMADS is bundled with the ProvideX Development System and is fully integrated with the ProvideX graphical program editor.
This set of highly advanced Rapid Application Development (RAD) tools makes it easy to develop user-friendly interfaces, controls, and dialogues in harmony with existing character-based applications. In addition, you can move your NOMADS GUI applications to UNIX seamlessly via ProvideX thin-client technologies (WindX and JavX).
NOMADS employs a top-down approach that streamlines and simplifies development tasks, optimizes system resources, and saves time. It enables you to:
The system features a common data manager for consistent access to a variety of data files. It also facilitates the conversion from character-based to GUI functionality by allowing you to run graphical and character-based application components concurrently.
The powerful run-time engine, *winproc, works behind the scenes to process the components you built in NOMADS, and effectively ties them together into an attractive, user-friendly, GUI application
